I have notice just recently I got couple white dots around the height of my stomach. I'm not sure what the cause of this is. I have to admit that I have a hard time in winter due to the extremely cold weather that we have up in NY but not sure if that can be the cause. I also went to Brazil for New Years 2010 but I always got 35spf in all my body and face as I didn't want to get burn and in the heavy sun hours I was under the umbrella.
I got a full physical and exam from complex blood exams to tc's to scans to check all my middle lower body parts. Everything you can imagine and everything came back right. So blood and thyroids and everything came back being excellent.
What can those white spots be related to?? Fungus? What is nor working? What is my body not generating? Can it be because of super dry skin?
I am using a cream that a doctor gave me; it works as far as hydration but not for the spots. (Avene Trixra Slectiose)
I'm not sure about the size of the spots but one thing comes to mind from years ago in college. I had been out in the sun and may have been in a tanning bed before my trip. I had small white spots on my skin and had no idea where they came from. The doc had me get strong concentrated form of a Selsum Blue shampoo. I had to apply this twice/day (? it's been a while!) for a week or two and it went away. Something in the shampoo breaks down the cause of the skin spots. You could google some of this to find out more but I remember this working. Good luck!
From the symptoms it sounds like tinea versicolor. Tinea versicolor is caused by a fungus that lives in the skin of almost all adults. Factors that can cause the fungus to become more visible include high humidity and immune or hormone abnormalities. Treatment involves topical and oral antifungal medicines like Nizoral, Selsun.
I sincerely suggest you to discuss these treatment options with a dermatologist.
